Robert’s Snow by Grace Lin and Robert’s Snowflakes: Artists’ Snowflakes for Cancer’s Cure compiled by Grace Lin and Robert Mercer

Roberts Snow.Snowflakes

As her husband recovered from cancer treatments, Grace Lin wrote Robert’s Snow, the delightful adventures of a tiny mouse, to celebrate their good fortune. But just months later, Lin and her husband – also named Robert – were told that Robert’s cancer was back, and his best chance for survival was a breakthrough in research. They decided to help doctors by recruiting the most talented, award-winning children’s book illustrators such as Eric Carle, Ian Falconer, and Mark Teague to paint the most unique, memorable wooden snowflakes which they auctioned off. The project raised over $100,000 for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Now in print is a collection of the best of Robert’s snowflakes. All royalties go back to Dana-Farber – can you think of a single reason that this shouldn’t be your most popular holiday gift this season??!!
